Disk Herniation and feet swelling

Can anyone tell me please whether disk herniation can cause feet to swell. I have L5-S1 disk bulge and both my feet always hurt and swell sometimes (I can see the veins in the morning..later in the day I cant see them because of swelling). Also how is Dr. Christoph Meyer in Houston (anyone been to him)?

Re: Disk Herniation and feet swelling


Cannot say that I'm aware of any connection. My legs swell if I sit too long, but the fluid retention is a result of weak heart plus some of my meds. Some people with similar problem take a BP med with diuretic, but I'm allergic to most BP meds. The simple diuretic called Lasix works great to keep fluid out of legs/ankles and keep heart from being strained.

If this is new with you, plese see your primary doc. It could be related to some of your meds, especially if you take NSAIDS, or it could mean that you need a check of your BP. If you ignore, it could make things worse for later, and it might be something as simple of a change of one of your meds.
